You must begin this perspective understanding that you are visiting a tiny bit of land accessed by a two lane highway off the tip of Florida. If you arrive with the perspective of anything else, you are doing yourself and the Keys a disservice.
My family rented a 3 bedroom villa overlooking the Marina. It was clean, well appointed, well situated logistically and had a wonderful view of the harbor. I do want to share that it was very quiet at the villa. When we first arrived at the resort registration, my daughter exclaimed, “Why are there so many people? I want to get away from the people.” True enough, in the afternoon, there are many people in the main pool/lagoon area. However, our villa was comfortably quiet and a comfortable short walk to the pool and lagoon. We found that we preferred the morning and late afternoon/evening in the lagoon. I still miss my morning swims. My children loved having ready access to kayaks and paddle boards. My mother-in-law enjoyed the easy view from the beach chairs watching both the lagoon and the sea life in the marina channel. My husband and father-in-law raved about the tennis.
We found Hawk’s Cay delightful in its amenities and accoutrements for a family stay. We found the staff to be accommodating with our needs. I do suggest that they work on the registration front desk. There seems to be a deficiency there in handling the large influxes of registrants and checkouts. We were able to just leave and notify the front desk from the car that we had exited.
The staffs at Alma, housekeeping, concierge, and poolside were all welcoming and accommodating. You must note that there is no grilling on the property. ? We did go to King’s Seafood in Marathon and purchased some excellent grouper. We also booked Snuba through the concierge with Dive Duck Key, which was outstanding. We went snorkeling with Spirit. We enjoyed both excursions immensely, but you must take Dramamine, even if you’ve never been sea-sick. Little boats and rolling seas don’t make things easy on the equilibrium without help.
